The Two Fly Fishing Tournament Details
Each year, the Two Fly tournament is held the Thursday and Friday before Mother's Day in Casper, Wyoming. An ice breaker will be held Wednesday evening to distribute rules and boat assignments. After the first day of fishing on Thursday, you will be treated to an evening barbeque on the river. The Tournament will again be concluded with an Awards Banquet Friday to include dinner, drinks and an auction.
The Two Fly Tournament will consist of two-man teams from the oil and gas industry. Team members will not fish together and will fish different stretches of the North Platte River on two different days. Participants must fish with two flies of their own choosing for the entire day; however, different flies may be chosen for day two. A monetary contribution will be assessed for additional fly changes. Three nights lodging, meals, boats, guides, and extras are included in the entry fee.
Since its inception in 2005, the Two Fly Foundation has raised money for the following charities:
- Central Wyoming Hospice

Members of the top three teams will receive premier fly rods and reels and the fisherman bringing in the "Biggest Fish" will receive a "Two Fly" bronze sculpture. All participants will receive hats, shirts, and other fishing gear as well as being eligible for various prizes.
